Georgina Taylor rescues two teenagers off Castle Hill
Tenby’s inshore lifeboat was launched at 6.20pm on Wednesday 14th July, following a report that two teenagers seemed to be in difficulty in a dinghy off Castle Hill.
The volunteer crew were quickly on scene and took the teens aboard the lifeboat, where they were checked over to make sure they needed no medical attention, before being returned to Tenby’s North beach, along with the boat.
With the casualties safely ashore, the lifeboat was re-housed.
